Comment posted If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy.
I want to preface what I’m going to say next with what will seem like an obvious statement to you. Your needs are different from those of the majority of my clientele. You are already in shape and given your profession, have to focus on leaning out what is an already fit body. So my advice to you will deviate from what I’m telling my other clients.
First, do the P90X Classic resistance workouts. You already know the value there so I don’t need to expound on that. Do those 3x per week as the schedule you have you do but skip the ab ripper x (ARX) on those days. On 2 days a week (not your resistance days) do ARX, a HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout and a session of exercises to lean your legs. I’m in the process of video taping some HIIT workouts but if you are in a hurry, my 2nd best recommendation is for you to get the Tony Horton One on One Medicine Ball Core Cardio workout (you’ll need to use the drop down box and the workout is about 1/2 down the list). It does a great job working your legs and midsection and throwing you into a fat burning mode. I will also video record for you a leg sculpting routine but you can create your own version for now of different squats, lunges, piles, and side leg lifts. The key for you will be to work the leg muscles from a number of different angles with no weights and reps in the 15 – 25 range, 1 – 2 sets per exercise.
Then your regular dance routines should provide you some low to moderate level cardio which, coupled with the resistance training and the HIIT will keep your body fat low.
